This paper presents the possibilities of a practical poetic-geographical approach as an audio-visual draft guided by Ukrainian prose and poetry. One layer of the theoretical base of this paper is build on the reflection of the relationship between geography and literature in the history of geography as an academic discipline – through examples of literary and artistic practice in geography. A second layer is formed by working out the relationship between art and geography in the realm of phenomenology and post-structuralism. The following artistic-scientific approach is guided by literature from the Ukraine and presents a possibility of poetic-geographical practice employing experience, aesthetics, feelings, emotion and performance in an audiovisual part and extracts of texts contextualizing the video clips.
